Deus Ex: Human Revolution 'Missing Link' DLC fills story gap

If you've played Deus Ex: Human Revolution to completion, you know that at one point protagonist and walking lozenge advertisement Adam Jensen is incommunicado for three days. Jensen's boss asks what was going on, but our hero isn't exactly the talkative type. Apparently that was all set-up for an upcoming piece of DLC that will fill in the missing time.

An ongoing augmented reality game teasing a DLC reveal may have been for naught, as one intrepid fan noticed the official site's RSS feed had been updated with the following text (via Siliconera):

The Deus Ex: Human Revolution conspiracy grows deeper in The Missing Link. During lead character Adam Jensen’s quest for the truth in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, he mysteriously vanishes for three days. Where was he? What did he find out? The Missing Link reveals it all.

"We are very excited for Deus Ex: Human Revolution fans to be able to complete Adam’s journey in the game with The Missing Link DLC," said David Anfossi, producer of Deus Ex: Human Revolution at Eidos-Montreal. "Gamers will be able to experience a vulnerable side of Adam like never before, which gives the overall game a whole new dimension. The Missing Link propels players into compelling gameplay, beginning with Adam being stripped of his use of augmentations, new, visually stunning environments and the continuation of Deus Ex: Human Revolution’s conspiracy rich story.”

After being tortured by Belltower agents and having his augmentations disabled, Adam Jensen must rely solely on his basic capabilities to escape from a freighter, destined for an unknown location. While fighting for his survival on the ship, he uncovers another layer to the conspiracy that he never would have suspected. As Adam, gamers will befriend new, mysterious allies and fight ruthless enemies to discover what was happening in the shadows during the events of Deus Ex: Human Revolution!

The update has since been removed from the RSS feed. The feed pointed to a directory on the official Deus Ex website, which has yet to go live.

No date or price was revealed for the DLC yet, which makes sense considering the accidental nature of this leak. Expect an official announcement with details soon.
